1 Corinthians 13:11~Maturity

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
~1 Corinthians 13:11

With all respect to St. Paul — that apostle to the Gentiles and the one entrusted with mysteries kept in the mind of God from the beginning of the world — I don't know if I'm ready to grow up. 

A couple of conversations with my grandsons (who are 7 and 6) have taught me that they may be older than I am. One no longer wishes to discuss if that's Toby (from Thomas and Friends) in the lower field there; the other looked at me most quizzically when I described bits of mica as mirrors for the fairies. You take a bunch of concrete thinkers and toss in a fruit loop like me and there's a conversation!☺ 

A blessed day to you...
